Gotta include with Etta doin Hard To Handle and Tell Mama two shows in a row!!

I also had the opportunity to see the boys with Boz Scaggs, in a surprisingly awesome appearance at the Vietnam Vets benefit in May '82 at the Moscone. It was all blues with Lovelight (first US post Pigpen), Walkin Blues, Death Letter Blues and JBG. I would highly recommend this to any Deadhead.

Other greats I was fortunate enough to witness with the boys, Airto/Flora Purim, John Cippolina, Matthew Kelly, Rick Danko, The Band, Nevilles, Dylan, Bonnie Raitt and Mick Taylor.

As far as the worst I witnessed, by far it was Hall and Oates. While What's Going On was nice to see, you couldn't hear the boys (especially Jerry), and, for the life of me, I will never understand why the boys agreed to play "Every time You Go Away". It was the only time that I heard a significant amount of boo's at a Dead show.
